During the third series of Community Conversations on Growth in 2018, the city shared various proposals to address the need for affordable housing. One key component of this effort was exploring ways to maximize land use to support the creation of additional affordable housing in appropriate locations by amending the development code. The first area the city considered changes to was Accessory Dwelling Units.
What is an Accessory Dwelling Unit?
Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are a second, smaller dwelling that can be built on a property already occupied by a single-family home.
